Fueled by interest in ancestral, high-protein, and fresh meat diets, consumer interest and sales of raw meat dog and cat food have been growing consistently over the past few years, despite scientists’ warnings about raw pet food safety. Pet food industry executives, analysts and scientists shared their insights into the raw pet food market in 2018. “If there are new trends coming into the industry, of course you feel it in the number of inquiries we get on the subject,” said Urs Wuest, director of product management at Buhler. “And fresh meat is of course a big issue at the moment.”
